Château Musar Rouge 2000
The 2000 holds on to its primary fruit whilst really starting to reveal the classic Musar identity, balancing out the characteristic sweet spice and desiccated fruit notes with more evolved elements of leather, tar, tobacco and a hint of game. These complex aromas and flavours are lifted with a fresh lick of acidity that will ensure the wine will continue to age gracefully for years to come.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Carignan
Fermentation progressed well- slowly with very little heat as it was naturally under control. Interestingly, the level of alcohol was higher than usual- almost the same as 1999. All in all, it was an easy harvest and an easy fermentation with hardly any problems and malolactic fermentation followed its normal course.
Vol. 750 ml.
